Buffalo Council Approves Sewer Modeling Bid

Buffalo Council Approves Sewer Modeling Bid

The Buffalo City Council has approved a bid from Grizzly Engineering to perform a sewer modeling study on the city's existing sewer line infrastructure. Aaron Palmer has more.

City Works Director Les Hook explains what the study will do.

Hook said the bid on the contract was $115,836 but that did not cover the full amount of the cost of the project.

The final cost could not be pinpointed, Hook said, because the software to run data collecting has not been purchased yet. The contract will need a change order in the future once they have the cost of licensing the software.

The two licenses will cover one software package on Hook's computer and another on City Planner Zach Montgomery's computer.

Hook said the scope of work is also defined in the contract, and Grizzly Engineering will perform sewer modeling, inflow data studies and infiltration studies on nine specific sewer lines throughout the city to determine where the city needs to concentrate on replacing or expanding lines.

The completion date also had to be left open as the studies must be performed under various flow conditions. The Council approved Mayor Skip Hancock to sign the bid contract.
